RECENT TESTIMONIAL: 'Susan, Sarah and I enjoyed our vacation so much last month. Thank you again for letting us stay! We have been talking and would love to come back next summer for a longer period of time. Possibly a couple of weeks if that is possible. We'll be talking a lot about it and we'll have to give you the dates when it gets closer. You are truly lucky to live in such a beautiful place. We've even decided to look around the area for a home after college! Thanks again, take care!

Regards,Alex'

Clean and beautiful views

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed 3 nights and totally enjoyed ourselves. Everything was as advertised. Prices well The views are excellent. We used the kitchen for most meals and spent most of our time on the dock and screened room. Owners were friendly and available if needed Thanks for a relaxing stay. We would definitely stay again

Our stay

  • 2 of 5

We stayed one night, it had it's good points and bad. We had booked a month in advance, but when we arrived past the check in time, it was not ready for us, we went shopping for groceries while it was being readied. Also, it could have been a lot cleaner, and spruced up a little bit more, for example, tape on the mini blinds to hold them together. Front burner on stove didn't work. No cover on ceiling light, just a bulb you had to screw in. Bathroom, while mostly clean, smelled of mildew. The mattress on the futon was pretty uncomfortable. Not much attention to detail. A beautiful location with a wonderful view. Nothing special to make us want to return. Hosts attitude was indifferent at best.

Owner's Response: It is distressing to learn from this review that these vacationers were unhappy with their stay at Suzie's on Seneca. I am always open to recommendations on how to improve the property and will certainly make every effort to address the points that were made about the ceiling light, blinds, damp odor and the stove burner. (There are six lamps and three overhead lights in the apartment and the "screw in" ceiling light is not needed and not meant to be used.) As stated on the website: The property is "more rustic than Ritz." The main attraction is certainly the close proximity to the lake, the lovely surrounding area, your own private screened in porch and fully equipped kitchen. I have striven to set realistic expectations to prospective vacationers ahead of time so that they can make an informed decision with much success. This party was granted special requests in advance and made no mention of any dissatisfaction to me while they were here. I emphasized to them as I always do, "if you need ANYTHING, please let me know!" They did not. I told this party upon meeting that my sister in law had just died unexpectedly and my drive back from the funeral in Long Island that day took longer than expected which is why the property was not entirely ready for another half an hour. This less than satisfactory experience is atypical and I take these points VERY seriously. They will be addressed. Ninety-nine percent of my renters have been delighted with their experience as we have been delighted with the many wonderful, interesting people that we have had the honor and privilege to host! Sincerely, Susan Sullivan

Wonderful retreat right on the lake

  • 4 of 5

Excellent location, right on Seneca Lake itself (not across a road), near wineries, and with great bicycling from the driveway. (7 mile route along the lake, through the protected trails in Sampson state park, then up a hill to Willard for lunch or ice cream in a local cafe.) Watkins Glen is about 45 minutes away, and we stopped there on our way home for hiking through the gorge, and a lunch of very fresh food on a deck at the end of the lake.

The efficiency apartment is basic, with one large room, queen futon bed, small bathroom, and kitchen area with stove and fridge. Fine for a couple. Plenty of lamps and places to sit. It feels a bit like a cabin, but also has a private screened porch, just steps from the dock, where we relaxed, and also ate. There is a well-used bird feeder, along with a butterfly garden, in the yard. There are also ducks, gulls, and herons right off the dock. The whole area is remarkably peaceful, even though it was a prime August weekend.

Hosts were very helpful and also very interesting. They gave lots of suggestions, set up two kayaks for us to use, and told us a lot about the history of the lake and the wineries. We are definitely hoping to come back.
